"Coasting on his inheritance of $22 million, New Jersey defense attorney Andy Carpenter is not inclined to take on any cases--until his ex-girlfriend, Laurie Collins, calls from the Midwest pleading for his help. Trading the factories of Paterson for the frozen pastures of Findlay, Wisconsin, Andy finds himself in a small town handling a big-time double homicide case. But while he tries to save a young suspect, make sense of his love life, and find a decent pizza for his beloved dog, Tara, Andy uncovers the bizarre workings of a mysterious ultra-religious community. Now he must find the connections between the murders and the cult, or more lives will be in jeopardy--including his own"--Page 4 of cover.

I am really enjoying reading this series! Andy Carpenter speaks my language: self-deprecating, sarcastic, and just a little humble pie tossed in. There is also a Golden Retriever ever at his side - one can never go wrong with the right dog in the story! I will continue to read additional work by this author -- I am so very glad to have had a member of my FB group, The Danamaniacs, (followers of author Dana Stabenow) make this author recommendation!

(The fifth book in the Andy Carpenter series)

Andy Carpenter really doesn't know what he wants. One thing is certain though, his life is just a tad empty without Laurie who has moved to Wisconsin to become a chief of police. When she calls for his help to solve the murder of two coeds, he goes to her taking Tara with him. Rosenfelt's books offer wise-cracking dialogue, entertaining characters, and great plots.

Quick read - great fun and a Golden Retriever named Tara

Despite having a very simplistic storyline and a plot pushing all credibility, the book is entertaining and fast-paced
